A Visit from my Parents

My parents got to visit for a long weekend in October since it was my mom’s Fall break. My brother also got to come for part of their trip, it was nice to have them all in town!

On Friday morning, while Eva was in school and my dad got some work done, my mom, Finn and I hiked the Battle Creek Falls trail. It was such a beautiful hike that morning and fun to show her a new place she hadn’t been to before. When Eva was done with school, we went to the farm and then headed up to Temple Square/City Creek for the evening. We got to watch one of the new Mormon Messages clips and it was so great. I wish we could have seen more! Make sure you check those new clips out at the visitor’s center.

Saturday, my mom and I went to a High class early that morning and then we all went to Cornbelly’s for a few hours. It was such a nice day, it even got a little too hot for the kids! After having lunch, we went on a drive and little walk up at Cascade Springs, which none of them had been to. It was a bit crowded, but the leaves on the drive made up for it! That evening, my parents graciously babysat the kids while TJ, Sam, and I went to Vivint’s work party where One Republic sang. I didn’t know much about them but it turns out I actually know a bunch of their songs. It was an awesome concert and so much fun to have my brother with us!

My brother left Sunday morning, we went to church, then just took it easy around the house. It was really cold and windy that day, unfortunately. But we did take my parents to TJ’s office in Lehi, just to get out for a bit.

Let’s see… Monday we went shopping at the outlets, walked around Cabela’s, and ate at Tsunami for dinner. It was delicious, but now I know why Asians are all so skinny. After eating all the sushi, I felt like I could eat a whole other meal! Ha! We finished the night off getting gelato at Harmon’s.


On Tuesday, my parents headed home and I pretty much cried nonstop for the next three days 🙁 ! It was just so nice to have them visit! I miss them so much already. Just move out here, already!
